ok, I don't post very often, but I am SO pleased with my pain management doctor, that I had to let everyone know!
For those that do not know me, I have severe DDD, Chronic herniations, and tears on basically the last four disks in my spine. I have already had 3 failed surgeries on my back, and am not a candidate for any more. My only treatment now is pain control.
So, I go in for my regular medication appointment, with the second worse migraine of my life. My Dr. offers to do injections to my neck to stop the headache. 3 min. later, he comes back to the room with his kit, and injects 5 different sites on my neck and shoulders...Immediate pain relief! very comfortable/tolerable needle placement/injections! whenever my sciatic gets agrevated, he is able to trigger point inject w/o imaging, and able to navigate my scar tissue with ease by touch only! The man is a genius with a needle! He trusts me, and the only issues we have, is that I smoke!
It is nice to have an ally in this struggle! I live in St. Cloud, MN...if you want his info, please message me, and I will gladly give it to you!
